Database Manager on October 24, 2019:

Updated by David Storey, the builder.
The four pedal stops were from the Rieger Sweep, St. James\'s Episcopal, Richmond, VA. There were many other Rieger stops that went to many other organs. The original Flentrop pedal was 27 notes. The key and coupler actions were expanded and a new slider chest for the pedal was made by David Storey to accommodate the pedal stops. The manual stops and actions are as originally built by Flentrop. The case was restored to its original rich red mahogany color.the 4\' in the pedal is a Holzprinzipal. The 16\' Boudon was the Rieger 16\' Quintade. The 2\" Nachthorn was originally the Rieger 4\' Nachthorn.
